Weave a Wool Drying Basket

Denise Arzberger

July 8 | 9 - 4


This traditional basket features a plaited base, wood feet, and bushel basket handles. Learn basic basket making techniques with options for personalized decorative rows. You don’t need to dry wool to find plenty of uses for this functional basket: it is suitable for storing magazines, needlework projects, etc! Finished size is approximately 15” x 13” x 11”. All level basket weavers are welcome. Please bring the following supplies with you: clippers with a thin blade or strong scissors, flexible tape measure, pencil, small flat screwdriver, dish pan or bucket, plant mister and an old towel.

Denise Arzberger has appreciated baskets for their function and beauty for as long as she can remember. She took her first basket making class in 1989; from then on, she was hooked! Denise enjoys designing baskets for functional use. Many patterns she has designed and taught are intended to add a creative twist to a traditional style of basket. Denise has taught since 1995 at technical colleges, recreation departments and The Clearing, as well as at basketry conventions in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.
